- A Nigerian lady has called the attention of the public to a fake food item that is going around in the market
- According to the individual, she realised the product was a counterfeit after her mum complained of the funny taste
- Several Twitter users reacted to the post with mixed reactions
A social media user identified by the username @sahsuu on micro blogging platform, Twitter, has called the attention of the public to a counterfeit food item that is going around in the market.
According to the lady, she had gotten a call from her mother, who bought a jar of mayonnaise and asked her to taste it, because she found out it was having a funny taste.
Upon receiving the call from her mother, @sahsuu said that her memory was jogged, and she remembered that she had seen a similar complaint of the item on Twitter.
So, she proceeded to peeling off the wrap of the jar, and to her dismay, found out that the product was an imitation of a bigger brand that makes the same food product.
